Roller Shutters


Here at Alliance Doors, we can deliver a bespoke roller shutter design and installation service to all our clients. We are committed to providing shutters which are highly-resilient and simple to operate daily. Over the years, the team at Alliance Doors has manufactured and installed roller shutters in some unique properties all over the world.

Recently, our team were called upon to manufacture and install a bespoke roller shutter for an RAF base. This hard-wearing roller shutter was one of the largest we’ve ever produced and installed and is designed to offer a lifetime of service. Creating a roller shutter for an airplane hangar was a unique challenge, but we’re extremely proud of the way it turned out. All of our roller shutters are also designed to provide a high level of clearance without requiring any additional space. This enables the professionals at the RAF to take full advantage of their available space.


Roller shutter doors are ideal for larger industrial spaces, including airplane hangars and warehouses. Many larger designs can be difficult to operate every day. They can also take a great deal of time to open and shut, which can be problematic in harsh weather conditions. Another potential risk for large openings is that, due to their surface area, they will sustain a great deal of damage due to high wind speeds.

Fortunately, the rollers that we can provide are able to withstand wind speeds of up to 150mph. They are all designed from industry-leading materials to ensure that they will deliver an unbeatable service for many years to come. In addition to the natural versatility and durability of large roller shutters for industrial spaces, they can be equipped with a range of unique features to improve their suitability for their environment.


An important part of any roller shutter installation is the addition of other features which can improve the practicality of the shutters. By choosing to equip your large roller with some of these features, you’ll be able to make it much more practical and easier to operate daily. Some of the additions that you can make include:

  • Industrial Top and Bottom Tracks – One of the most common problems with shutters, particularly rollers, is that they rely on their tracks. These pieces of metal can suffer damage over many years. In some cases, they can even become buckled or warped. This can prevent the shutters from opening at all.

Here at Alliance Doors, the tracks for all our doors are made from hard-wearing materials. They can provide a life-time of service without requiring any kind of maintenance. The weight of the roller will be evenly spread out along the tracks and, when they are fit flush with the floor, they are protected against damage from vehicles and foot traffic.

  • Brush Strips – Brush strips can be used to eliminate all kinds of debris beneath the roller doors. This can help to remove even minor debris which can lead to blockages or damage to the tracks. They can also help to prevent the metals from scraping together. This can also help to reduce the noise caused by the operating of the large roller shutters.
  • Wicket Doors are a very important part of any large Roller Shutters to allow personnel access without having to raise the entire door. We can factor in Wicket Doors to any roller shutters we manufacture to ensure you maintain the most efficient solution in terms of insulation and speed of access.
  • Safety and Security Features – There is a range of security and safety features which can be installed as part of your shutters system. For example, hard-wearing locks and key-operation boxes to prevent unauthorised access. Safety options can include manual overriding switches and sensors to prevent the door from closing on a person or vehicle.


Here at Alliance Doors, our experienced team can deliver a range of large shutters for use in all kinds of commercial and industrial buildings. Our designs are used in a wide range of properties, including military establishments, to provide long-term security and practical daily use. We can deliver rollers which are a practical choice for any kind of opening.

Our professional team will help you to create a bespoke shutter design which will provide long-term service in all kinds of properties. As part of our complete range of shutters, we can provide:

  • High-Speed Rollers.
  • Insulated and Fire-Safety Roller Shutters.
  • Manual and Power-Operated Roller Shutters.

The large roller shutters that we can provide are ideal for commercial and industrial properties, including:

    Roller Shutters FAQs

    What are Roller Shutters, and how are they beneficial for warehouses?

    Roller Shutters are vertical doors made of slats that roll up and down to open and close. They are beneficial for warehouses as they provide security, weather protection, and can be quickly opened and closed to streamline access.

    What are the benefits of roller shutter doors for industrial & commercial access?

    It can be difficult to find the perfect way of preventing access to your industrial property without compromising your daily activities. Fortunately, roller shutters are a practical way of controlling who can access your property, in addition to providing high-quality protection against the elements and criminal or anti-social activity.

    Just some of the practical benefits can include:

    • High-Levels of Security – Thanks to the hard-wearing nature of roller doors, they can provide high-quality security to your property. At Alliance Doors, we manufacture our designs out of hard-wearing metal which are resistant to the effects of the weather. These shutter doors can also resist a wide range of impacts without being unusable.
    • Extremely Convenient – Whether you’re looking to protect a small kitchen servery or a major hangar entrance, roller shutters can be a quick and easy way of accessing the area. Roller shutter doors are available in manual, for small entrances and doorways, or remote-controlled/automated designs. You will be able to open these features with the simple push of a button.
    • Easy to Install – When you work with a professional team, who manufacture the design to meet your specifications, installation is extremely easy. These designs don’t require much in the way of exterior space to install or operate.

    What are the key differences between powered and manually chain opened Roller Shutters?

    Powered Roller Shutters are automated and can be operated with a push of a button or remote control, offering convenience and speed. Manually chain opened Roller Shutters, on the other hand, require manual operation using a chain or crank handle but are more budget-friendly.

    Can Roller Shutters be customized to fit various warehouse sizes and specifications?

    Yes, Alliance Doors can customise Roller Shutters to fit different warehouses, residential or commercial properties of all sizes and specifications. They offer options for materials, sizes, colors, and security features to meet specific requirements.

    Are Roller Shutters secure and suitable for protecting valuable warehouse assets?

    Do Roller Shutters provide insulation for temperature control within the warehouse?

    Yes, many Roller Shutters are available with insulation options. Insulated Roller Shutters help regulate internal temperatures, making them suitable for climate-controlled warehouses and potentially reducing energy costs.

    Can Roller Shutters be used in domestic properties?

    In addition to being extremely useful for industrial and commercial spaces, these features can be essential for domestic properties too. They are regularly used to protect garages and sheds, in addition to providing an easy access point for the space. Whether you choose to take advantage of a manual door or a remote-controlled/automated system, these solutions can provide a great deal of protection.

    At Alliance Doors, we can deliver bespoke manufacturing and installation of roller shutters in the UK. We can work to provide effective shutters to all kinds of entrances, including garages and sheds. This can be necessary when it comes to protecting your belongings from criminal activity and damage.

    Are there maintenance services available for Roller Shutters, and how often should they be serviced?

    Alliance Doors provides maintenance services for Roller Shutters. The frequency of maintenance depends on usage and environmental conditions but is typically recommended annually to ensure smooth operation and prolong the lifespan of the shutters.

    Can Alliance Doors assist with the installation of Roller Shutters for existing warehouses or new construction projects?
